When was the last time I’ve heard a Flux Pavilion mix? It must have been many years ago since I last heard anything from this man. Obviously I have heard his tracks on the radio or in mix compilations, but an actual mix by him, that must have been a few years ago. And by checking my music folders it turns out that the last time I heard a mix was the fourth instalment of the UKF Podcast, which was released back in 2010. 7 years without a single mix by this man, what’s wrong with me?

Flux Pavilion is a house hold name in the Dubstep/Trap world. And I reckon those who don’t even like Dubstep even know his name. His records have been played all over the world, and also the label that pushes music into the world is widely known: UKF. For their 100th instalment they asked the legendary Flux to make a mix, and what kind of mix that became? A full on monster megamix! 71 records in an hour long mix. And if you were expected only Dubstep, you are wrong. This mix has got literally everything in it, as long as it’s got Bass. And if you’ve got good studio monitors, good car speakers and good headphones, this mix will blow your mind into pieces.

As I said, it’s got 71 records. Boy, have I got a task ahead by typing this all down here. Wish me luck!

Yep, that has demolished my fingers completely. I need to recover, give me a minute or two before I continue typing.

I am back. And I’ve got to say that this tracklist does look alright. Sadly I’ve been out of the scene for too long, and only know the most well known names such as Flux, Doctor P, Funtcase, Cookie Monsta, and that’s basically it. I should have paid more attention, and I should have listened more to other UKF podcasts. But I clearly admit it, I am not lying about it. But damn, I’ve missed out on a lot!

This mix contains new and older stuff. But it’s all Bass-driven. The focus is on the Bass, and that’s what you get throughout the mix. And also an incredible 71 records, which still amazes me. Flux makes it sound so easy, so easy to mix, but I reckon this gave him a huge headache afterwards, and when he was actually doing it. How can you do an hour mix without a small mistake? Well, Flux did it, and he did it well, errorless/flawless.

Entertaining, to say the least. This keeps us Bass lovers moving. As I said you can expect more than just Dubstep. From Drum & Bass to EDM, to Trap, to Dubstep, to Bass House. It’s an hour of fun.

I can not pick a favourite, there are too many. And according to others who have already listened to this mix (in 5 days already 24.4k+ plays!), this mix is dope. And I concur. This is ace, a mix that will get you through the week, and will make the time towards the weekend shorter. This week will fly by.

Flux, I promise, it won’t be 7 years for me to hear a mix by yourself. I will reduce the time, trust me!

There’s one DJ who doesn’t need an introduction at all, he’s been at the top of many ‘best DJ of the year’ lists, including the famous DJ Mag 100. He became number 1 in the world when he made Trance music, and now he’s focussed on spreading EDM music to the masses. Might still not like his decision, but it has paid off for him. Playing at a sold out EDC Las Vegas this year, he has proven himself again to the world that this choice was a damn good one, because if you look at the picture above, you see thousands of people loosing it. He’s still one of the most popular DJs to come out of our little country, The Netherlands.

I remember the night when he played at Innercity back in 2000 (was it 2000? I reckon it was). That’s 17 years ago, and around that time his name started to rise the ranks. He became hotter and hotter, and 17 years later he still plays out all over the world. From his own night to playing at the biggest event in the world (well, one of them). He’s seen it all and done it all. At EDC this year he made sure the people there would witness something good. Playing the well known tunes, including a few of his own productions/remixes. The tracklist is quite long, and after typing it I might need to go to hospital, because my fingers will hurt.

Now that’s a tracklist and a half! Sweet Lord, Tiësto crammed in as much records as he could! And the result was indeed an extremely long tracklist. My fingers hurt a lot now, thanks for that!

You can say whatever you want, but he knows how to get the people hyped up. There are some slammers in here, so damn good. But then you find records such as ‘L’amour Toujours’, ‘Maria’, ‘Malibu’ etc. OMG, I knew that the EDM was diverse, but to copy that masterful record from Marshall Masters or Gigi D’Agostino and give it this treatment is disgraceful. This sounds nothing like the original, and it doesn’t do the originals any justice. And let’s not talk about ‘Malibu’, what a dull track.

I would have thought that a set by Tiësto would be awesome, but sadly this is not what I was expecting. This is quite dull and boring. They are good tunes, but not ground breaking tunes. Maybe a handful records have made me move a bit harder and faster, but the majority are quite dull. I’m sorry, Tiësto is a legend, but this mix is absolutely dull. After an hour and a half I wanted nothing more than to listen to anything else.

Maybe EDM isn’t my favourite style anymore. Maybe it’s going into a direction I don’t want to go to. This was dull. Sorry Thijs.

Maybe I’m not in love with what Tiësto does. I kind of like Marshmello more, he’s there to blow everyone away, and make sure they keep on shaking their heads, wondering what’s about to happen. This was as dull as watching Andre Rieu play in Maastricht…. and I’m from Limburg!

The season of excellent events have emerged, and the weather is so good, I reckon wherever you are on God’s given Earth, you are going to have an epic Summer! Especially when you are in a warmer climate, which you can get in Miami. Miami, does it ever rain there? The sunshine is the one thing everyone sees there, from early mornings to late evenings. Last year an event took place, which doesn’t need an introduction: Ultra Music Festival. And one of the acts there (there were so many top notch artists) was Marshmello. One of the quickest growing superstars within the EDM scene. And who it is, I don’t know. He’s one DJ with a lampshade on his head. Or something that looks similar.

Now normally I listen to the harder stuff, from Hardstyle to Hardcore, but today I came across a set by Marshmello. Not knowing much about him, but what I already knew was that he’s a much loved DJ and producer in the ongrowing EDM scene. He plays at every event imaginable, and he also had probably the biggest mannequin challenge crowd the world has ever scene. Or maybe was that Donald Trump big inauguration (where everyone stood still)? Anyhow, he’s big, and he knows it. Everyone on the world wide web seems to love Marshmello, so I thought that today was going to be a good day to hear what this mysterious man has to offer to the world.

Remember, I’m normally not a fan of EDM, it’s all too bouncy and too happy, and sometimes too cheesy. But boy, I was wrong! This might have been recorded back in 2016, but on the 23rd of June 2017 Marshmello’s set made one Dutchman in Luton extremely happy! Smiles for miles, that’s for sure! Let me show you the tracklist, and you will know what I’m talking about!

41. Adele – Hello (Marshmello Remix) 
42. Marshmello feat Omar LinX – KeEp IT MeLLo

Now that’s one packed tracklist, and that’s exactly what you can expect once you hear the first beats and bass coming through your speakers! This is seriously insane, I’ve never really heard a proper Marshmello liveset (or mix), but this has seriously blown me away! My brain is so screwed up right now, I need a cold drink to calm myself down!

The quality of the mix isn’t really that good, you can hear the beats and basses, but they are slightly rough. But that could be because it was aired on a radio station, and maybe the quality has gone down a bit. But what comes through your speakers is seriously sickening! The bass (as low as it can go) is penetrating your skull. I reckon that’s why he wears a lampshade, to make sure that the beats do not demolish his DJ skills!

This is a serious set. A pure party pleasing set. Epic tune after epic tune. How this set can change everything is unbelievable! I was a bit tired this morning, and once I’ve pressed play I was alive, and bouncing up and down on my seat. My colleagues looked funny at me, but I was mello, extremely mello!

I love that he jumps from one style to the next with ease. From Hip Hop/Rap to EDM to whatever is on his USB stick/CD/vinyl (don’t know what he uses). He made the event his, with this killer set. He’s all about spreading love and happiness, and during UMF2016 he dominated the dancefloor in Miami.

He immediately appeared on my wishlist of artists I want to see and hear live. If all his sets are this good, I will have a great time. Don’t know when I can or when, because most events are sold out extremely fast or are too far away from me, but one day it will happen!

I loved the diversity. Thanks Marshmello for this epic mix. Sadly I can’t download it, don’t have Spotify. But I’ve got the press play button, and I will play it so often, I alone will be responsible for at least 650.000 plays! One extremely BIG and fat set!

Favourite record? Every one of them. Even the Bieber stuff. I loved every second!

A brand new mix tape landed in the UK Hardcore scene! A brand new one, you probably weren’t ready for it. It contains 3 of the biggest names, and they are pushing not only their own skills forward, but also the label Broken Records UK, and of course their love for music in general. Not only does this mix contain a few Hardcore anthems, but other EDM smashers. Not your standard mix, but who likes standard nowadays anyway? You are so oldskool, that’s so 2014! Welcome to 2017, and it’s the year of diversity. This mixtape contains diversity, it has to be said.

2 MCs and 1 DJ on this mixtape: MC B and MC Mista Domer, and DJ Jekyll. All together on one mix, sadly only 30 minutes long, but within those 30 minutes you get 14 anthems, carefully mixed and selected by Jekyll, and you hear Mista Domer and B doing their thing, and they do it extremely well. Quality over quantity, and diversity. What else were you expecting?

The tracklist is a big one, and it’s worth showing you. Here you will see what I mean when I say diversity. You will love this tracklist so much.

tracklist

01. Zomboy – Like A Bitch (Kill The Noise Remix) 
02. DJ Snake – Propaganda (Jauz Remix) 
03. Zero Hero – Back Again
04. Jekyll & StudioSlave – Turn Up
05. Diskord – Anything U Want
06. Botnek & I See Monstas – Deeper Love (Stonebank Remix) 
07. Starkillerz – Discoteka (Jekyll & StudioSlave Remix) 
08. Jauz & Ephwurd – Rock The Party
09. MNEK & Zara Larsson – Never Forget You (Phantasy & Dextone Bootleg) 
10. Da Tweekaz – Hewwego (Darren Styles Remix)

12. Joyryde – Give My Love
13. Kayzo – Kill It (Getty Remix) 
14. Metrik feat Ragga Twins – Worldwide

How about that for a tracklist? It’s so damn good, so diverse. I’m digging this really. It’s so diverse, and with MC B and Mista Domer’s voices it makes the mix even more better, if that’s even possible.

Within 2 days people have gone mental, already 652 plays! And I’m personally responsible for 100 plays, kept pressing play today. I really liked Jekyll’s style and MC B and Mista Domer’s voices, it’s nicely balanced.

These three know exactly what they are doing! Crowd pleasing tunes, crowd pleasing vocals. Everything is just perfect, it’s Summery, it’s fresh, and extremely bouncy! Jekyll is always on fire, very dangerous behind the decks. But let’s not underestimate the two MCs: the mix was good, but was made better with their bars spitting through the records!

I liked this mix a lot. Couldn’t find anything wrong, besides its length. But let’s forget about that, seeing as it’s too damn hot to focus on that.

Best record in this mix? ‘Give My Love’. The vocal is just perfect!

A very good mix! Can’t wait to hear more mixes like this, let the world know how we celebrate it in the UK, and how big the UK Hardcore scene is at the moment. Let’s make it bigger!
